The Hyundai Vision G concept is a preview of the design direction
for the company regarding future premium vehicles. It's no secret
Hyundai has spent the last few years massively improving their build
quality, whilst simultaneously bringing their styling up to the same
level as the competition. The Vision G is just the latest step in
their ongoing upmarket trajectory.
The Hyundai Vision G was unveiled at the Los Angeles County Museum
of Art, although it also made a guest appearance at the prestigious
2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance car show.
Among the Vision G's styling highlights are a large front grille,
which features a different design from the one worn by Hyundai's current
range-topping sedan, the Genesis. The sloping rear end design houses
new light cluster designs, while the car's dual exhausts are integrated
within the rear bumper.
The Vision G concept is a preview of the next-generation Genesis Coupe;
in fact the concept is even badged 'Genesis' inside and out.
On the inside, leather and wood trim are complimented by brushed aluminium
and chrome accents as part of a fairly discreet, and no-nonsense minimalist
design. The concept features a digital dashboard, central infotainment
screen and a high and wide center console bisecting the cockpit. One
of the notable features of the concept, and one surely unlikely to
make the transition to production, is a technology which automatically
opens the doors - like a valet - when being approached by the driver.
Powering the Hyundai Vision G concept is a 5.0 litre V8 engine which
produces 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine has been
taken directly from the current top-of-the-range Genesis sedan.
